Dependable, compassionate care to meet the needs of the whole person – physically, spiritually, emotionally and intellectually – inspires our dedicated professional staff at Valley View Specialty Care. Whether a resident is with us long term or short term in our rehab to home unit, every patient benefits from the care of our well-trained experienced staff.
Valley View is a nonprofit, 75-bed skilled nursing facility with private and semi-private rooms. Located on the edge of Eldora in Hardin County where our residents get the best small town living and the best healthcare. Being a part of the community is essential to every person’s well being. Area pastors and ministers frequent our building weekly to provide church services and just to chat. Several schools are nearby and our residents enjoy the occasional show choir or band performance. The second grade reader program helps young ones with their reading skills and engages our older generation in a meaningful manner.
Entertainers of all kinds visit at least every other week. Daily coffee klatches are held. Specialty groups like the Red Hat Ladies frequently come to help with regularly scheduled Bingo games. Trips to the local senior center get residents out in the community. During the summer months, an occasional trip to the Sac Fox Overlook for some sightseeing and a picnic is a breath of fresh air. Of course, our screened in porch and large outdoor front porch are always available for meditating on nature.
“Our staff is really what sets us apart,” says Administrator Susan Eichmeier. “Many of them have been here for more than 10 years. We always have two nurses on staff.
Additionally, the layout of the rehab to home unit offers short term residents all the creature comforts of home including a tastefully decorated suite, cable television, tables, chairs and a mini-refrigerator. A separate entrance to these suites is convenient also for our outpatient guests and located only steps away from state-of-the-art technology designed to rehabilitate patients faster and more easily and get them on the way home as soon as possible.
We hope you’ll stop by soon for a tour or just to visit with our residents.
